Brown will recur on the series as Dani, the assistant to sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison (who’ll be played by “Friends” alum Perry).

The series, which Perry is also producing, will also star his “17 Again” co-star Thomas Lennon as fussy photographer Felix Unger, a role previously played by Tony Randall on the small screen.

Jack Klugman played Madison opposite Randall’s Unger in the original series, which was based on the Neil Simon play of the same title.

While “Community” was canceled by NBC earlier this year, the series has been picked up for a sixth season on Yahoo, with a premiere date planned for sometime after Christmas.
